The season may have ended but organ music continues at St Lawrence Church during the Spring and Summer with the Lunchtime Organ Concerts and a special appearance by Ben Bloor ((Brompton Oratory Church) on Tuesday 9 July 2024 starting at 8.00 pm. Ben's event is part of the inaugural Alton Arts Festival. Admission to Ben's concert (including programme) is £10 at the door (free admission to full time students under the age of 18). Lunchtime organ concerts are free with a retiring voluntary donation towards the organ restoration fund.

David Hill MBE organist and International Choral Director, Patron of the Alton Organ Society and currently President of the Royal College of Organists very kindly recorded a CD on the St Lawrence Church, Alton, organ to celebrate 55 years of the Organ Society and to raise funds for the restoration of the Speechly organ. The music was recorded by Herald AV Publications, a specialist recording company, in October 2022. The CD was launched at St Lawrence Church, Alton on Tuesday 4 October 2022. The CD costs £15 of which £3.00 of the purchase price will go towards the organ restoration fund. David's CD was reviewed by Choir & Organ Magazine and copies of that review and Graeme Kay's article on the Society can be seen here. The CD can be purchased from members of the Society Committee, from Resurrection Furniture in Alton and at the Society's Organ Concerts.
